I ended up wearing a long and gorgeous eggplant colored gown I found at a Macy's the day of. After observing the other ladies in attendance, dressing for a night at the opera is like a classy and sophisticated upgrade from prom and rapidly approaching an awards' red carpet. Really fun for those of us who don't get to dress up much!
Anyway, here is a sleek and simple look that is more than opera appropriate.
***NOTE FOR YOUR DATE: Don't want to wear a tux? Well, a black suit, white button down shirt and white tie will do just fine. The illusion of a tux without the fuss!

Here is a thought when working with bold, printed dress; try subtle color accessories (i.e shoes and bags). You don't want to take away from the dress, which should speak and standout by itself. Here is an example using a gorgeous dress suggested by one of you lovely readers.

Earlier the engagement rings used to be exclusively a diamond ring or any other piece with diamonds in it. Today jewellery is much more stylish from pieces like brooches to body jewelry as well.
